Cool Website Evaluation Tool for Your Simple Work From Home Opportunity

http://www.homebizonlinethatworks.com/

I learned about websitegrader.com from my Pipspowergroup forum ( PPG is such a great resource). It is a FREE webmaster tool that checks the quality of any given website. All you need to put in is your URL, related keywords, a competitor site (optional), and your email (the report will be sent to the email address). Then, at the click of a button, a comprehensive report is generated.

First and foremost, the report gives your site a score over 100. This is based on all the websites evaluated by this tool. The report then breaks down into the following sections:

I. On-page SEO

  • Metadata
  • Heading summary
  • Image summary
  • Interior page analysis
  • Page readablity level
II. Off-page SEO
  • Domain info
  • Google pagerank
  • Google indexed pages
  • Last Google crawl date
  • Traffic rank
  • Inbound links
  • DMOZ directory
  • Yahoo directory
  • Zoominfo
III.Blogsphere
  • Blog analysis
  • Blog ranking
IV.SocialMediasphere
  • del.icio.us bookmarks
  • Digg.com submission summary
V. Converting Qualified Visitors to Leads
  • RSS feed
  • Conversion form
VI. Competitive Intelligence
  • Keyword grader
  • Score summary

There are some interesting criteria that I didn't know before. For instance, how soon the domain name is to expire counts negatively against a website. One should have one's domain set to expire beyond at least a year (Mine is expiring in 6 months. I have to go extend it with my registrar).

Another criteria I only vaguely knew about was a listing with the DMOZ directory. I knew DMOZ is a highly regarded directory and hard to get listed with, but didn't know that a listing with them would actually be considered a strength in one's website.

I also think the keyword grader is very helpful. It tells you the search volume of the keyword as well as how well your website ranks with it.

With 135 inbound links and top 22% traffic per Alexa, my score is a pathetically 43. The report did not find a blog on my website as I have it here on Blogger. So I guess I suffered a little disadvantage in my score in the blog related measures. I have a lot to work on my keyword with 92nd ranking. But what concerns me more is that my keyword phrase does not appear to have much search volume...I need to do an up to date keyword search.

In any event, the websitegrader.com seems to be a really neat tool. I know I will check back later once I've made some progress.

Cheers!

Alexa.com is a subsidiary of Amazon.com. It is a website which provides information on traffic levels for websites. The Alexa rank is measured according to the amount of users who’ve visited a website with the Alexa toolbar installed. Alexa toolbar is an application developed by Alexa Internet. Its primary use is to measure website statistics. This toolbar collects as well as gives some valuable information. Once you install it, the Alexa toolbar monitors all your surfing and collects information about what domains you visit. They use this data to rank web sites. The traffic rank they assign to websites is based on 3 months of aggregated historical traffic data from millions of other users and is a combined measure of page views and users. Webmasters, advertisers and ad networks use your blog’s Alexa rank as a gauge to determine the worth of a link on your website. If you depend on link or site selling as a form of monetization you’ll definitely want to increase your Alexa rank, because it’ll increase your bargaining power when it comes to ad pricing.
